Discovered! The TRUE Cause of Diabetes
Why diet and exercise aren’t enough for prevention
There’s more to preventing type 2 diabetes than diet and exercise.
That’s because there’s an underlying risk factor that can increase your risk of diabetes even if you’re not overweight.
Most doctors have NO IDEA that this health problem exists… much less that it could impact diabetes.
But stick with me, because I’ll show you how taking control of this one area of your life has been proven to help control blood sugar while burning more calories—two key factors in preventing type 2 diabetes.
Your body runs on a tight, 24-hour schedule called its circadian clock, or circadian rhythm.
Getting exposure to light and to darkness at the correct time of day is a key factor in synchronizing these important clocks.
When they’re out of whack, your health takes a hit.
This is the reason why night shift workers consistently have a higher risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes.
Now, a new study has highlighted how light exposure impacts your metabolism, and shows how it could ultimately contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes.
For the study, 14 overweight people with pre-diabetes stayed in respiration chambers for two 40-hour sessions.
For one of the sessions, they were exposed to bright light during the day, dim light during the evening, and darkness at night. (A natural light pattern.)
For the other session, the lights were dimmed during the day, and bright in the evening.
The researchers found that exposure to bright light during the day was associated with better blood sugar control and with more burned calories, compared to the session when light was dim during the day.
Exposure to bright light during the day also contributed to a greater difference in body temperature between day and night. Lower body temperature at night helps you sleep better and is associated with better blood pressure.
Since high blood pressure often goes hand-in-hand with diabetes, following a more natural light pattern could help regulate both blood pressure and blood sugar levels.
But being awake during the day and sleeping at night isn’t enough to keep your circadian rhythm properly set.
Indoor lighting tends to be too dim, and it is no substitute for the natural light you get from direct sun exposure.
Compounding the problem, exposure to blue light at night confuses your body into thinking its daytime.
For optimal health—and optimal blood sugar control—keep your circadian rhythm optimal by getting plenty of sunlight during the day and limiting exposure to blue light at night.
